Dating someone? Is his birthday coming up? You know him well, and dang you love that guy... but what on earth are you going to get him? Here are some fantastic birthday gifts for boyfriends!
You can also find great ideas for birthday gifts for men in general, but let’s focus on your relationship. What would be a good gift for your boyfriend specifically?
He loves you – really he does – but a pillow case with your face on it
is just too much. And teddy bears holding stuffed hearts that say “You +
Me” are beyond cliché.
Instead, go on a romantic date. Take him to the midnight showing of a romantic movie or to dinner on the lake. Set the mood, and almost any gift can become romantic! Check out our romantic birthday gifts for him for more ways to swoon with your honey.
These are the things he loves – not you. He loves his hobby, his car,
his tools, his buddies, all that. Boyfriends adore women who can
appreciate his personal interests.
Buy him that gaming station he's been talking about, or the camping gear he was raving about. Get him a magazine subscription about his favorite pastime (guns, gardening, gadgets - would he enjoy a 12 pack "can cake"?).
One boyfriend was excited about his new motorcycle. His girlfriend bought a got a motorcycle pocket watch for his birthday - he loved it!
The best birthday gifts for boyfriends are the ones that show how you respect his interests (or at least allow him an opportunity to enjoy them). They show him that you care about him entirely – even the things about him that have nothing to do with you.
Give him a birthday gift that complements his unromantic interests.
Give him 2 tickets to see ________ (fill in the blank). This could be
his favorite sports team or band, a movie he’s been talking about, the
classic car show – anything he really wants to see.
If you’re not interested in going with him for whatever reason, tell him. Send him with a buddy. Guys like guy-time as much as girls like girl-time. Plus, it shows that you trust and care about him as a person, not just your boyfriend.
Your gift will not be forgotten!
We’re not talking about the generic gift basket you saw with the same ol' wine and cheese (unless that's what he really likes).
We’re talking about birthday gift baskets based on his
The best kinds are the ones you make – they really aren’t that hard to put together. Simply pick a theme that he would like (that last part is important), put it in a “basket” and wrap it.
Want an example? "Date Night In A Box" is a hit! Simply buy him a movie (his latest favorite... or movie tickets would work), then grab his favorite theater candy, some bags of microwave popcorn, and a popcorn bowl. Package the movie, candy and popcorn bags inside the bowl and wrap it up.
Boyfriends love this!
Boyfriends also love getting personalized birthday gifts - like candies, guitar picks, and playing cards! Nothing says "I love you" more than a thoughtful gift personally made just for him.
Boyfriends don't really want a bunch of warm-and-fuzzy nicknacks floating around the house. They DO want to be appreciated, cared for, and feel like you know them well enough to get them a good birthday gift.
So think about him and his likes and interests - then get something to match!
